A favorite of audiences, Three Nuts for Cinderella, with a screenplay by František Pavlíček, was co-produced by the then German Democratic Republic and Czechoslovakia. The modern treatment, humorous perspective and charming cast enthralled audiences, domestic and abroad. Royal balls, magic hazelnuts and lost slippers are only fragments of the many attributes of this well-loved film which, not for its winter atmosphere alone, has become an emblematic must-see at Christmas time.
